Re: Oral History of Judge Patricia M. Wald
Dear Steve:
I am writing to confirm my email communications to you respecting disposition of the transcript
and voice recordings of the oral history of my mother given in seven interviews during the period
1992 – 2003 and sponsored by the Historical Society of the District of Columbia Circuit.
I have consulted with my siblings and, with their approval, hereby authorize the Society to
publish the edited transcript of the oral history on the Society’s website. We are aware that, with
my mother’s approval, the transcript is published and available to the public at the Library of
Congress, the Judges Library in the E. Barrett Prettyman U.S. Courthouse in D.C., and at the
library ofthe Historical Society of Washington, D.C.
Additionally, we authorize the Society to transmit the voice recordings of seven oral history
interviews, minus any portion marked confidential by Judge Wald, to the Yale Law School for
inclusion in the Judge Wald Archive maintained there.
Sarah E. Wald
